Language and Music as Cognitive Systems

This chapter adds further comments on the discussion in Chapter 16. It provides a detailed account of the theoretical underpinnings of the computational modelling of cognitive processes. It is critical of the modelling approach followed by the target authors, especially with respect to its hand-crafted representation, musical presumptions, and its generality. It suggests that unsupervised, domain-general learning models are more informative and offer greater explanatory potential for cognitive modelling of music processing.
